A study the effect of time of half shoot pruning on yield and quality in meadow orchard of guava was conducted after subjecting it to different time of shoot pruning and their combination. Findings revealed that half shoot (50%) pruning significantly influenced yield and quality attributes of guava. Half shoot pruning in April results in equal yield in rainy and winter season crop during both the year. Lowest yield recorded in unpruned control in winter season crop. However, highest total yield per year was recorded in unpruned control during both the year with inferior fruit quality. Winter season crop obtained with increased TSS, ascorbic acid and total sugars.
